A full day on the water

Today was a nice calm day and we were able to get out on the water both morning and afternoon. Throughout the day we encountered our 3 resident dolphin species; in the morning common dolphins and a couple of very shy Risso's dolphins and in the afternoon a nice group of bottlenose dolphins (where we also spotted a small loggerhead turtle) followed by common dolphins. After a slightly chilly time on the ocean we returned to our base where we had some hot green tea from São Miguel waiting for us.
